This book is a guide for turning clinical systems into engines of discovery as well as a translational guide for moving evidence into practice. Data from systems studies have suggested that oncology and primary care systems are prone to errors of omission, which can lead to fatal consequences downstream. By infusing the best science across disciplines, this book creates new environments of "Smart and Connected Health."
